PREFACE 



Furnished by the 
CHAMBER OF COMMERCE. 



Wilson is the center and metropolis of a vast territory that 
is being rapidly developed; in which there are no large 
cities. In the Wilson territory are located scores of pros- 
perous, rapidly developing small cities and towns. 

Location — Wilson is located in the heart of Eastern North 
Carolina, the garden spot of the world. It is on the main 
lines of the Atlantic Coast Line and Norfolk-Southern Rail- 
road Companies with twenty-six passenger trains daily. 
These railroads traverse every part of the State. In addition, 
a splendid system of hard-surfaced and improved highways 
radiate from Wilson over Eastern Carolina. Therefore, Wil- 
son is the home of a great number of traveling men. Wil- 
son, on account of its location, is the logical point for dis- 
tributing houses and jobbers in this section of the State, and 
is rapidly forging to the front along those lines. 

Population, Size — Wilson city population for 1920 govern- 
ment census was 10,612; estimated 1925 population, 15,100. 
The population of Wilson County is 38,000. The citizenship 
of Wilson County is practically 100 per cent American, there 
being only 62 foreign born white persons in the county. The 
population has increased thirty-five hundred in 1900 to the 
above figures in 1920. 

Climate — Wilson is a delightful place to live in, the win- 
ters are mild and the summers pleasant. The climate of Wil- 
son, according to statistics for the past five years, gave 295 
days out of the year which can be used for outside work. 

Government — Wilson is governed by a Mayor and Board 
of Aldermen of five, one from each ward, who hold their 
office for two years, and are elected by the people. 

Educational — Wilson has an excellent system of free pub- 
lic schools. Wilson County has the most modern system of 

10 



PREFACE— Continued. 



rural consolidated schools in North Carolina, and its system 
has been adopted by the State Board of Education as a model 
for the other counties, every township, of which there are 
nine in the county, now has a modern two-story brick school- 
house. Wilson is the home of the Atlantic Christian College, 
the largest class A college in Eastern North Carolina. Wil- 
son County was the first county in the State that voted a 
special county school tax. 

Valuation — Wilson assessed valuation for 1924 was $20,- 
000,000.00. The total valuation, real and personal for Wil- 
son County in 1924 was $50,000,000.00. 

Taxes — 1924 city tax rate is 58 cents on $100.00 ; 1924 county 
tax rate $1.94 on $100.00 for all purposes. 

Land Values — Number cleared acres in county, 101,669 ; 
valued for tax at $16,103,945.00; average, $158.40 per acre. 
Number acres pasturage, 5,690; valued for tax at $295,800;

tax, $1,909,817; average, $45.51. Number acres timber land, 
87,950; valued for tax at $4,911,754; average, $54.80. Total 
acreage in Wilson County 236,079; valued for tax at $23,- 
212,316 ; average, $92.38 per acre. 

Fire Department — Wilson has a modern and efficient 
motorized fire department. 

Post Of6.ce Receipts— Post office receipts, 1924, $58,000.00. 

Hospitals — Wilson has three white and one colored hos- 
pitals. 

Public Utilities — Municipal ownership of water, gas, elec- 
tric lights, power plant and sewerage system. 

Banks — Wilson has six banks with a total capital and sur- 
plus of $1,235,455.00. Annual bank clearings, $30,000,000.00. 
Wilson has two Building and Loan Associations and a Morris 
Plan Bank. 

Hotels — Wilson has four hotels with 400 rooms — New

PREFACE— Continued.

semi-weekly. The Zion Landmark, the official paper of the 
Primitive Baptist Church, is also published in Wilson. 

Public Library — Wilson has a modern Public Library that 
is under the auspices of the Woman's Club. 

Churches — Wilson has churches of practically all denomi- 
nations. 

Chamber of Commerce — Wilson Chamber of Commerce is 
one of the leading commercial organizations of the State and 
takes a special interest in all traffic and transportation mat- 
ters that effect the shippers and receivers of freight in North 
Carolina.

course. 

County Highway Commission, with full supervision of 
highways. 

Organizations — Wilson has a live Retail Merchants' Asso- 
ciation, Woman's Club, Professional and Business Women's 
Club, Kiwanis Club, Rotary Club, Lion's Club, as well as 
other various organizations. 

Industrial — Wilson offers exceptional opportunities to 
manufacturers due to railroad facilities splendid labor and 
living conditions cheap freight rates and contented citizen- 
ship. Wilson has more than 300 stores, both wholesale and 
retail, covering every line of business. We are continually 
fighting freight rates so as to make Wilson more attractive 
to distributors, and we have succeeded in eliminating the ad- 
vantage the so-called Virginia cities had over us for the past 
forty years, there is no advantage for a jobber doing busi- 
ness in Eastern Carolina to be located in Virginia, in fact, he 
is at a disadvantage. Wilson has largest wagon works in the 
South. Three fertilizer factories. Two cotton oil mills. 
Three cotton and knitting mills and various other industries. 

Tobacco — Wilson, North Carolina, the logical distributing 
center for Eastern North Carolina, is now the largest loose 
leaf tobacco market in the entire world, a fact that every 
citizen is proud of, and was brought about for the reason 
that the warehousemen and buyers here have always played

PREFACE— Continued. 



fair and honorable with the tobacco growers, every grower 
knowing that sales are going on in four warehouses at the 
same time he will be given a square deal here, and that his 
tobacco will bring the highest prices. 

The first sale of leaf tobacco, and that at public auction, 
the method by which we are still selling tobacco and will 
continue to sell tobacco, it being the fairest way for both 
seller and buyer, took place on Tuesday, September 10, 1890. 
From a small start in a building holding 50,000 pounds, Wil- 
son has grown to a market with six immense warehouses with 
a capacity of over 1,000,000 pounds daily, and this year the 
tobacco companies have furnished four sets of buyers, mean- 
ing that sales are going on in four warehouses at the same 
time. Wilson is the only market in the world that requires 
that. 

Practically every dealer in leaf tobacco in the world has 
buyers on the floors of the Wilson market. Immense plants 
for handling the tobacco have been erected by the Imperial 
Tobacco Company, Ltd., of England, Export Tobacco Com- 
pany of England, Wilson Tobacco Company, R. P. Watson & 
Company, B. J. Reynolds Company, J. E. Hughes Company, 
W. T. Clark & Company, American Tobacco Company, Lig- 
gett and Myers and Monk & Company.

PREFACE— Continued. 



Farming — From a geographical standpoint Wilson County 
is most admirably situated. Being in the extreme upper edge 
of the Coast Plain District, and just at the end of the Piedmont 
section, it has many of the advantages of both. That is to say, 
it is rolling enough to take care of the drainage very well, and 
does not have the cumbersom hills, which are a serious handi- 
cap to the farming industry. On the other hand, it is a desir- 
able distance from the Tidewater region, thus giving it a 
healthful medium, dry climate, with abundant rainfall for agri- 
cultural crops. Its soils are of the sand loam type with slight 
desirable variations. 

Wilson County is situated in the center of the bright leaf 
tobacco belt, which gives it prominence throughout the world. 
It has also the distinction of being in the center of the highest 
cotton producing section per acre in the world. Wilson County 
soils are well adapted to the raising of corn, hay, potatoes, 
legumes of many varieties, peanuts, oats, rye and various and 
sundry kinds of fruits, vegetables and live stock. The farmers 
of Wilson County plant on an average of 29,500 acres of cot- 
ton, 33,000 acres of corn and 16,500 acres of tobacco yearly. 

Wilson and Wilson County offers many opportunities to the 
manufacturer and home seeker, and specific information will be 
gladly furnished upon request by 

THE WILSON CHAMBER OF COMMERCE, 

Wilson, North Carolina.

Power of 

Advertising 



The City Directory is the power that generates informa- 
tion for the buyer that he may know who deals in the pro- 
duct he wishes to purchase. 

If your business is not classified properly and a display 
advertisement arranged to describe your business, how 
can you expect the buyer to trade with you? 

Advertising is the foundation upon which successful 
businesses are built. You must apply this to your own 
particular business. 

Advertising is the power of an idea multiplied.
